Menu Plan January 31 – Nuts

By · Print This Post Print This Post

The Gluten Free Menu Swap Roundup is here this week, and the theme is nuts. I’ve got some great menu ideas with nuts linked below, but I’m starting with links to some snacks and treats. You’re bound to find something yummy to make for a Super Bowl party, or maybe even Valentine’s Day. Check out all these tasty ideas I found from some of my favorite gluten-free bloggers.

For my menu this week, I’m starting with some typical Celiac Family meals, and then trying three new ones with nuts. It may be a little ambitious trying three new recipes on my kids in one week, but I’m going to give it a try. Check below for the roundup of what other gluten-free bloggers are planning to eat this week.

Celiac Family’s Menu This Week:

Monday - Egg and Hash Brown Casserole & Fruit Salad

Tuesday - Chicken Vindaloo served over Rice

Wednesday - Rice Bowls with Chicken and Avocado Salsa

Thursday – Pistachio Pork Tenderloin
I’ve been wanting to try this amazing recipe for a while now. Carol’s recipe calls for rolling the tenderloin in ground pistachios after stuffing it with a pistachio, cranberry and goat cheese mixture. Can’t wait to give it a try.

Friday – Almond Tilapia
Gina at Moneywise Moms serves this tilapia dish with a broccoli slaw, which I just might have to try, too.

Saturday – Grilled Chicken with Cashew Sauce
I got my husband Alton Brown’s book Good Eats 2: The Middle Years for his birthday this month. I’m planning to try the simple recipe for Cashew Sauce to serve over grilled chicken.

Sunday – Leftovers

Gluten Free Menu Swap Roundup

Cheryl at Gluten Free Goodness likes to use nut butters in a lot of her baking and cooking, such as Nanaimo Bars Redux, Banana Mac Chip Cookies, and Sniffle Stew. For dinner this week, she’s having Baked Rosemary Chicken and Sweet & Spicy Moroccan Stew. Check it all out on her menu plan this week.

This week, Michelle at Gluten-Free Smiles shares a recipe for Sour Cherry Fudge with Pecans and Macadamia Yoghurt. She also has some very tempting meals on her menu this week, including Dairy-free Butter Chicken, Rice Wraps with Ginger Peanut Sauce, and Amy’s Turkey Burgers.

Wendy says her family doesn’t eat a lot of nuts at Celiacs in the House. But don’t let that stop you from checking out her menu, which should definitely keep her family warm through the winter storm hitting this week. You’ll find Caribbean Fisherman’s Pie, Winter Vegetable Cobbler, Beef and Black Bean Chili, and more hearty meals.

Angela at Angela’s Kitchen has been busy making gluten-free Girl Scout Cookies – Thin Mints, Trefoils, and Do-Si-Do’s! They look amazing. And she’s now on a quest to make the best flaky biscuits gluten-free and dairy free. Can’t wait to see the results from that. For meals this week, Angela is making Coconut-Spiked Pork with Quinoa and Peanuts, California Turkey Burgers, and more.

Check back later as I link to other gluten-free menus posted this week.

Heather, you have me drooling this morning! I am such a nut lover so all those links have me going. Thanks so much for including my Banana Maple-Nut Muffins! Haven’t had those in a while, but will be making them for overnight guests on Valentine’s Day for sure. ;-) I’m totally on board with all the recipes here. Carol’s pork and Gina’s tilapia sound divine to me. :-)

Have a great week! Hugs,
Shirley

Thanks for the link, Heather! We’ve only recently added almonds to our household. My son has a very severe peanut allergy so I’m still very careful about cross-contamination.
